Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last decade has seen dramatic growth of photonic technologies applied to biology and medicine. As an efficient imaging and diagnostic tool, the salient properties of light, including the frequency, coherence, complex wave fronts, orbital, and spin angular momentum and polarization, have had huge impacts on imaging biological processes in cells and tissues. Technological advances in optics and photonics, including spectroscopy, microscopy, and laser sources, allow for noninvasive observation of the structures and functions of cells and tissues in living organisms at molecular level.

Applications of photonics in the biomedical fields have drawn particular attention, since they enable non- or minimally invasive monitoring of cell/tissue morphology and dynamics, disease pathogenesis, and more.

The objective of this Special Issue is to highlight the recent advances and achievements of photonics technologies and approaches applied in biomedical and clinical research, spanning from cells to tissue and in vivo and studies.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Raman spectroscopy and imaging;
  • Fluorescence imaging;
  • Nonlinear optics;
  • Multiphoton imaging;
  • Optical coherent tomography;
  • Photoacoustic imaging;
  • Phase imaging;
  • Near infrared and infrared spectroscopy;
  • THz spectroscopy and imaging;
  • Cancer detection;
  • Brain diseases;
  • Virus UV killing and detection with spectroscopy;
  • Quantum effects in biomediscience and photosynthesis;
  • Tryptophan role in disease and quantum effects.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Photonics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
